"Notable Women of the Gatineau Valley" celebrates ten remarkable women who altered the physical and social landscape of the Gatineau Valley in ways that continue to shape our lives. The lived between the years 1825 – 2015, and their accomplishments range from building bridges to running businesses, establishing social services to changing environmental law. They did not always receive the credit they deserved, and much of their work happened behind the scenes and in the margins of history books, but their influence has reverberated throughout their families, communities, and, in a number of cases, throughout the world.
